I think today Klopp needs to go as strong as possible . If a player is fit and would play in this game if it were a league game they should start. Forget its a cup game, forget its United we just need a win. A loss today could give a mortal blow to confidence with a really tough set of fixtures coming up. Forget Spurs on Thursday we need a win today. Alison, Matip, Fabinho, Trent, Robbo, Hendo/ Shaqiri ( depending on Hendos fitness) Gini, Thiago, Salah, Mane, Bobby. If they are fit they need to start. Only way to get form back is to play games. I reckon OGS will play a strong team today knowing a win would boost his team and deflate ours immeasurably. Time for the attacking 5 to get their groove back.

Neco phillips matip tsimikas
Thiago. Milner
Salah mina mane

Gini knackered robbo knackered
Get fab in midfield, add milner for pressing and tackling. Drop bobby start minamino.

24 Jan 2021 15:54:32
Team announced Alison, TAA, R. Williams, Fabinho, Robertson, Gini, Milner, Thiago, Jones, Salah, Firmino. Mane on the bench and Henderson not in the squad.

24 Jan 2021 16:12:39
Williams makes no sense ahead of Phillips as he’s a poor defender, almost like giving United a one goal head start.

24 Jan 2021 16:15:50
Matip injured lad's?

24 Jan 2021 16:17:15
Looks like it could be a 4-2-3-1 today. Wasn’t that Klopps bread and butter formation at Dortmund?

24 Jan 2021 16:20:39
Barry, Matip is being rested/ eased back into the team due to his injuries.

24 Jan 2021 16:22:03
Ok thanks.

24 Jan 2021 16:22:38
Totally agree 6Times. Young players should be given the opportunity to show what they can do but he's simply not good enough. No pace or positional sense.

24 Jan 2021 16:26:13
I agree 6times. I just don't get it, but then again, I'm not in the training sessions either. Phillips looked good against Spurs.

24 Jan 2021 16:34:00
I don’t think Matip can play two games consecutively, which is not good. Phillips would make sense today to counter the physical threat of Cavani as there’s not much pace in that United side when he’s starting. Phillips has looked a far more competent defender every time he’s started than Williams who just looks a Kvarme style liability.

24 Jan 2021 16:44:48
Liverpool supporters, best supporters in the world, running down a player before the game has even started.

24 Jan 2021 16:52:19
Come on Guys, let's support whoever is pulling on the shirt.

24 Jan 2021 16:55:47
I’ve never seen Williams have a good game, I’ve only ever seen him make mistakes which lead to goals, it’s not running him down but telling an uncomfortable truth, which is that he’s not really good enough as a long term option because he’s got no pace, lacks concentration and is a poor defender. I think we’ll be going out the cup today, which is fine by me as I don’t think we need the extra games, but I’d rather not lose to that lot down the m62.

24 Jan 2021 18:16:15
I make you right 6Times. I have no wish to run anyone down, particularly a LFC player, but he is clearly not good enough. So, that begs the question of recruitment and coaching, and why we don't have any natural CB better equipped to step in when two key CB's are not available.

24 Jan 2021 18:16:38
So was I right then Thunderbird 2?

24 Jan 2021 18:33:09
Williams is WORSE than Dijim.

24 Jan 2021 18:45:29
Honestly think we’d have been just as well sending the reserves out for this one and resting our first team regulars. What have we gained from this than another demoralising performance and ninety minutes football that no one needed.

24 Jan 2021 18:58:07
We look miles and miles away. Can't point too many fingers as a lot of these issues have been circumstantial.

We need Phillips in the team, Hendo back in midfield and potentially a significant rest for Trent. However, I'm worried about Neco coming in because he seems to be an easy target for a lot of our fanbase.

Rhys Williams isn't ready for this level of football, and it's frankly pointless to ruin a young player's confidence this early. I don't blame him personally - Klopp should be seeing this.

Don't want to sound too defeatist but I think we have to consolidate our ambitions and focus on top four now. Sorry to add to the negativity lads, I hate losing against United and I'm gutted with how we're playing.

24 Jan 2021 19:00:19
Thunderbird, clearly they have reason to. terrible mistakes by Williams and it because of him they scored a goal and nearly gave it away at the end! The kid is too slow, his turning cycle is longer than mertersacker’s! Phillips would have been a much better option.

24 Jan 2021 19:33:18
Yep and he won't get quicker. I'm surprised he's even an option. Surely the money spent on a CB will be paid for with a higher league finish and same w CL. Maybe the right player isn't available?

24 Jan 2021 19:36:33
Gini slows us down in the final 1/ 3 and around the box. We need Thiago more advanced or someone to come in to put defenses in two minds. Gini's a worker but no guile. Jones linked well w Trent and Salah when he dropped today. Left side become so predictable w Gini passing backwards or inside.

24 Jan 2021 19:48:46
There is a difference between critically analyzing a players performance after the game and giving him abuse before the game has even started. I don’t think Rhys Williams is good enough for Liverpool but whilst he is a Liverpool player I will support him 100%. Abusing him doesn’t make any sense to me, is the purpose to make him play better or just make yourself feel better?

24 Jan 2021 20:43:26
I didn’t say anything abusive. I’ve merely pointed out that he would make mistakes which led to goals, which he did. The truth is that he’s simply not good enough to play at the top as he lacks the quality, ability and concentration.

What concerns me is that Klopp genuinely seems to think he’s a better option than Phillips, which is mind blowing given that Phillips has played very well when called upon, because he can actually defend, something that Williams cannot do.
